In Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, the Gomti River Front Scam was so ‘built’ that despite spending thousands of crores, the question remained alive in people’s minds as to when the work will be completed. The budget continued on budget between construction work but Gomti is still the same today. Yes, the appearance of the edges of Gomti has also changed in retail. The huge amount released in the then Samajwadi Party government was disturbed. In the year 2017, Yogi Adityanath’s government came to UP. After the government, the Gomti River Front scam also came to light. The case has been investigated for three years. On Friday, Roop Singh Yadav, then executive engineer of the Irrigation Department, and a senior aide were arrested.
Baldev Singh Aulakh, Minister of State in Yogi Government Nbt online Talked to, ‘In 2017, the government has been formed under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Be it goons, crooks, ransom seekers… have treated them harshly. I have the irrigation department. When Chief Minister Yogi held a review meeting, it was found that the river front was a big project. I do not think that this should not be in the cognizance of the minister or the Chief Minister of the government which has been there before. These scams happened under his nose. I say that the arrest of whoever is guilty has been corrected so that government money is never misused. This investigation has been submitted to the CBI. Whoever feels guilty, who will be responsible will be acted upon.
The accused were interrogated
After the CBI in the River Front scam, a money laundering case was filed by the Enforcement Directorate. At the same time, the ED has also questioned five of the eight accused in the case. The Anti Corruption Branch filed a lawsuit in November 2017 on the direction of the Yogi government of the state. The Anti Corruption Branch made a case for this case filed by the Aadhar Irrigation Department at Gomtinagar police station in Lucknow.
